Ammonite

Rating: R21

Synopsis

Mary Anning wears a seemingly impenetrable exterior, not unlike a fossil. Leading a humble existence as a fossil hunter, her brilliance as a palaeontologist is systematically undermined in patriarchal and classist Victorian England. One day, Charlotte, a wealthy young woman suffering from melancholia, arrives at Mary’s shop with her husband, who leaves her behind to convalesce. Mary begrudgingly nurses Charlotte back to health; over time, both unearth a tenderness for each other.
Winslet’s and Ronan’s breathtaking performances take the audience on a deep dive into forbidden love. With the ravishing Jurassic Coast framing the duet, Ammonite cements Francis Lee’s place among the most exciting visionaries in queer cinema today.
